the original twilight hat can be seen here. that version wasn’t clear enough for my liking (although i did like it). enter twilight version two. this one also does not pass muster.
my thought was to take the chart and do it in sock yarn, since there are so many pretty dyed ones, and make it into a tam. didn’t work so well. size one needles worth of not working so well. because i do 2 handed stranded colorwork and this is not an overall pattern – some of it sparse, some of it dense, some of it resembling a rib – my gauge changed a tiny bit throughout and therefore what should be a tam became a beanie. i thought about going down a couple of needle sizes for the brim (ahem, 00), then decided i liked it better on fatter yarn anyhow.
so now i’m taking my chart and trying something else with it. i will find the perfect hat for this chart – i swear i will! in the meantime, this one fits katie perfectly and will thus find its way to alaska.
happy solstice! our twilights will now get earlier and earlier.
